nice looking truck for a 90. You can expect thing to be wrong, it's only 25 years old LOL.
I am parting my dad's old 93 right now, every panel has rust of fist sized holes or bigger.

The transfer case should be manual engagement, I am betting it's the axle actuator. Hopefully the one from your other truck will fix it.

As far as the lift, nowadays, there are tons of lifted trucks on the road, none of them every leave the pavement, just for show.
I think it looks sweet like that. :smilewink: :D

I own a lifted truck (1990 F-250) JUST for off-roading! My dad also has a 2006 F-350 diesel, that we wheel constantly (Not as much since it doesn't have a winch yet).

On my time off at christmas i sanded,primed and painted the truck.I used rustoleum automotive primer,and the duplicolor paint shop championship white,and clear coat.There were a couple off dents that i had to fix,but no rust to repair.From the molding area down to bottom i used rustoleum undercoat.I wanted something that i could easily touch up if it gets scratched. I also undercoated the frame and the underside of the body.I also used the rustoleum brush in bedliner that was very easy to use and work with.It takes multiple coats to get everything covered.By no means is it a professional paint job,but it looks a heck of a lot better than it did when i got it.

 

Here are some pictures before and after sanding

Last saturday i mounted the new pocket style fender flares,switched the front bumpers,reinstalled back bumper,installed the bull bar,and put the 2 decals on the quarter panels.I still need to get the tailgate decal.Today i repaired the 4wd.Swapped the accuators and that took care of the problem.I also repaired the lights for the 4wd console that light up when engaged.After that i hooked up and adjusted the emergency brake.The only things i have to do yet is replace wiper switch and tailgate decal.After tax season i'll get the new sneakers for it.The wiper switch is pretty involved so that'll have to wait until next weekend.I need to tear steering column apart to replace that.

I thought the paint was really good. It comes ready to spray no thinning needed. I wasn't real impressed with the clear it could've been better.it didn't cover like I thought it should.

The few videos I watched on it, guy did 4 or 5 coats of base then another 4 or 5 coats of clear, seemed like it didn't cover much. I was going to do the sons bronco when it got warmer, but it's getting sold.

If you sell the bronco what are you going to do with all your spare time?!
